Summit Panels

Medicine Security: Building the Foundation

Medicine security means every clinic, health worker and patient – everyone – around the world would have reliable, equitable access to medicine.

We know communities need medicine accessibility, availability, affordability and acceptability. Without any one of these four elements, people and societies can be medicine insecure. But more commonly, these pieces intersect. And often, they’re underscored by individual poverty. Today, nearly two billion people around the world lack access to basic medicines.

This is unacceptable.

This panel will review how medicine security is critical to individual, community and global health.

Conflict In Ukraine: Meeting the Health Needs of Refugees

The conflict in Ukraine has created the fastest-growing refugee crisis in modern history. Millions of people have fled the country, and millions more are internally displaced. At the same time, global displacement is at an all-time high. For all refugees, fleeing one’s home exacerbates existing health issues and creates new ones. Senior Vice President and Chief Program Officer Dr. M. Rashad Massoud will discuss the Ukraine humanitarian crisis and how we can meet the evolving health needs of migrants, refugees and displaced people facing an uncertain future.

Climate Challenge: Protecting Health

Everyone sees the impact of climate change: extreme weather, increased migration, rising sea levels and more. Many root causes of climate change also increase the risk of pandemics.

The list of disasters grows.

As always, the people who have contributed least to the problem and are, unfairly, affected most are those living in marginalized communities, with the fewest resources. We can learn from response and health experts who are protecting communities now, applying solutions that will be critical everywhere as climate changes continue and natural disasters expand.

In this session, panelists will discuss how we all – individuals, corporations and foundations – can deploy resources, make commitments and support emergency responses in a changing climate. We’ll look into what’s happening on global, national and community levels, from high level strategies to street-by-street solutions.

Workplace Changes: Evolution or Revolution?

The pre-pandemic workplace no longer exists.

Before COVID-19, only two 2 percent of the U.S. workforce worked remotely. By May 2020, that number had risen to 70 percent. At the same time, many other workers were deemed essential and continued to work on-site, under new safety protocols – and new stresses.

While the number of remote workers has certainly decreased since the onset of the pandemic, the effects of accelerated trends in employment are here to stay.

This panel will discuss creating community without a physical space and integrating mental health, wellness and safety into the workplace. Panelists will review changes in recruitment, retention and environment – and how they’ve forced organizations large and small to adapt, quickly.
